Biography and current work


My broad research interests span the area of autonomous database management systems and scientific data management. My current work focuses on the topic of robust query processing. Toward that end, I envision database systems as adaptive systems with the ability to heal themselves in order to provide robust and predictable query execution performance.


I obtained my MSc degree from the school of Computer Science and Automatics, University of Novi Sad, Serbia, in 2008, where I got a prestige award "Mileva Maric Einstein" for the best master thesis in the field of mathematical and informatics sciences.

Before joining EPFL, I have been working for 4 years as a senior software developer in a database team for DMS Group Company, Novi Sad, Serbia.

Since September 2010, I am a PhD candidate under the supervision of Professor Anastasia Ailamaki, in the Data-Intensive Applications and Systems Laboratory (DIAS), EPFL.
